intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight with the first song on Swale’s new album There’s No One Here.

1.) I’ll Start By Opening – SWALE
2.) Californ-i-A – Ryan Ober
3.) Sailor – Ethan Azarian Music
4.) Wilderness (?) – Lindsay and Jeff
5.) Poem For Torin/Ethan Is Stoned – Peg Tassey MUSIC

It was great to have Ethan Azarian back in town last Saturday. He brought Lindsay and Jeff and Kendra from Austin and they played Light Club Lamp Shop. Peg got up and played Ethan Is Stoned with Ethan. It was a great moment in Burlington music history. That’s a new song from Ryan who will be at Foam Brewers on Friday. Great stuff from Swale. OK, let’s play the next song on the Action EP.

6.) Give Love – 1881
7.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
8.) Elevate – Breakfast for the Boys
9.) Strings – Binger

After seeing the show at the Lamp shop I went down to The Skinny Pancake Burlington and saw a couple of songs from Breakfast and a full set by Binger. It was a great night. I love the line in the Sarah song about midsummer’s magic chance. Great song from 1881. This next band played yesterday in the rotary in Winooski.

10.) Ankle Breaker – The High Breaks
11.) Break A Leg – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
12.) Migraine – Hammydown
13.) 45 Clever Girls

Clever and Hammy will be at The Monkey House on Saturday. It will be a great show. I saw David and the band at Radio Bean last Sunday and didn’t go get a drink during the song or anything. Great stuff from the Breaks. This next band are at Foam tonight.

14.) Drivin’ All Alone – The Parts
15.) All Down Tonight – Swale
16.) The Process – Pinhead
17.) Mary – Anachronist

Great song from the central Vermont band. Classic song from Pinhead. I’m so happy I can play that Swale song. They’ve been playing it around for a while. The Parts always rock. So, I saw my first sunflower this week so you know what that means.

18.) Sunflower Street – David L Jarvis
19.) Move Through Time – Persian Claws
20.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka
21.) Gettin’ High – Heavy Plains

Plains are no more but they played some great shows and left us with some great music, like that song. Hopefully, Luke Adam will get his new band out soon. Classic song about the old north end of Burlington by James. Great songs from the Claws and Dave. OK, let’s keep rocking.

22.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
23.) Moving Song – Zola Turn
24.) Finally Found The One – When Particles Collide
25.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS

I can’t wait for the new Francis album. Particles are on tour everywhere. Check them out if they come to your town. Old classic from Zola and new classic from Rabbit. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) It Won’t Stop – Phantom Suns
27.) Pick Up Your Clothes – The New Siberians
28.) Time To Get Out – Aaron Flinn
29.) Here’s Where You Were – Swale

That’s the last song on Swale’s new album. Great songs from Aaron and the Siberians. Phantom is Ryan Cohen‘s band when he’s not in the studio. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I had a great time seeing music Saturday at Light Club Lamp Shop and The Skinny Pancake Burlington. It was a lovely day and I got out of work a little early and had time to just hang out for a bit. Around 5:45 I took the easy walk downtown. The show was set to start at 6 but the stage was just beginning to be set up. I chatted with Charlie Messing for a half hour or so then it was time for the Azarian Family Hoo Haw to begin. A woman named Kendra took the stage with a Ukulele. I let the first song wash over me and was in a happy place. Charlie commented on how good of a singer she was. For the second song a guy named Jeff joined her and played the musical saw. The song was about laying your comfort down and sounded quiet somber and lovely. A song about a hard rain followed then a woman named Lindsay came up and sang backing vocals. The song was about leaving my baby and was the last of Kendra’s set.

Up next, Lindsay took the stage and sang and played a slow eerie banjo with some effects and looping. She was joined by Jeff on the saw and chimes and phones. The gentle haunting sound was beautiful. They played songs about cold rain and sun and a howling Texas wind. Kendra joined them for a song that might have been called In Dreams. They closed the set with Kendra using a bow on something that looked like a small xylophone while Jeff used a bow on the saw and Lindsay used a bow on the banjo. The song about the wind and rolling sea was gorgeous.

Being a warm sunny day, the mighty Ethan Azarian opened with a song about the cold winter and putting your summer clothes away. Jeff and Lindsay have been playing with Ethan in Austin for a while and they added a nice touch to his sound. They brought up Kendra to sing backing vocals through a phone for an anti-marriage song about the lovebirds. Ethan’s quirky lyrics made The Zebra Who Runs Through The Night especially fun. They played songs about seeing you in the promised land and seeing you when they get home. They played the title song of Ethan’s new album When You Were Young then rocked out a song called Josephine. They brought up Peg Tassey MUSIC for a special treat. Jeff played saw and Ethan played acoustic guitar and Peg played acoustic and she sang the legendary Ethan Is Stoned. I’ve loved that song for a long time and was in heaven for every note. Ethan closed the set with a song about Joe playing that Sally Ann Slow and picking up his fiddle and bow. Everything about the set was fun.

I had thought about trying to catch some music at Sidebar but the time was running late so I just headed down to The Skinny Pancake. I got in and got a drink and wandered out to the patio as Breakfast With The Boys were wrapping up their set. They played a rollicking Whipping Post then a song with a bit of a Latin groove. The woman who sang had a great and powerful voice. They played one more fun song and that was that. I hung out for a bit then Binger took the stage. They sound checked with Fearless but began the set for real with If I Knew. The next song had a reggae vibe and was about all of the things I do. They played a new song called Sideways that was really nice. A cover of Natalie Imburglia’s Torn bounced nicely then they played a song about the spaces in between. They made me smile with a killer version of The Feeling Is Strange. A cover of Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots was fun and kept the smile on my face. They played another new song about a memory that had a ferocious jam at the end. A cover of Shakedown Street made everyone happy then they rocked out Strings. Covers of Can I Kick It and Jumper were fun. They played a hot damn funk jam then rocked out King Vice. They played two more, including Check Your Pockets and called it a night. It had been ages since I had seen Binger play a full show and their 16 song set was as good of a time as always.

I hung out for a bit and said a couple of quick goodbyes then took the long walk home.
